VCP-1 (online capillary viscometer for high-temperature high-viscosity)

For high-temperature, high-viscosity fluids

VCP-1

The VCP-1 is a high-temperature high-viscosity online viscometer for precisely measuring the apparent viscosity of viscous fluids.
Viscosity measurement can be used to determine the quality of the measured fluid and the degree to which reactions have progressed.
It is perfect for use in managing the quality of synthetic resin continuous polymerization processes and endpoint inspections of batch manufacturing processes.

Features

  • Online viscometer for precisely measuring the apparent viscosity of viscous fluids.
    Viscosity measurement can be used to determine the quality of the measured fluid and the degree to which reactions have progressed.
    It is perfect for use in managing the quality of synthetic resin continuous polymerization processes and endpoint inspections of batch manufacturing processes.
  • Performs measurement based on the Hagen-Poiseuille law, measuring the apparent viscosity as the difference in pressure between the entry and exit points when a viscous fluid travels a fixed distance.
  • Capable of measuring the apparent viscosity of non-Newtonian fluids.
  • Capillary diameter, shear speed, and pressure gauge scale can be changed to measure a wide range of viscosities.
  • Can be attached directly to vacuum tanks and decompression tanks to continuously measure the apparent viscosity of internal fluids.
  • Rapid response with almost no retention of measurement fluid within the meter.
  • Simple design and structure makes maintenance easy.
  • Product lifespan of approximately 30 years.Excellent return on investment.
  • Tried and tested, with a track record of over 720 units sold since 1972.
